Description for Taco 006-DM-PK

The Taco D-MAND System is the only recirculating system that operates 24 hours to provide hot water (on demand) at the same time it saves water, energy and money.
The D-MAND System is a small, silent pump that you attach to the hot and cold water lines in the cabinet under the most remote kitchen or bath fixture in the home. When the D-MAND System is activated, the cool water you normally let run down the drain is recirculated back to the water heater through the cold water line.
On demand, the pump circulates hot water from the water heater and returns the cooled water back through the cold water line. When the hot water arrives at the faucet, the D-MAND Systems patented heat sensor and control board shut off the pump to prevent pumping excess hot water into the cold water line.
Runs Only When Activated by the User
Automatically Senses When Water is Hot Enough
Saves Water, Energy and Money
Saves Construction Costs+No new return line needed and no need to drain the system
Simple Installation

I have already brought a second unit for

By Phil

Comments about 006-DM-PK Male NPT, 006 Pump w/ plumbing kit, 1/40 HP:

I placed my first unit in my bathroom in the master bedroom. I used to wait 3 to 4 minutes before I got hot water. The waiting time used plenty of water which went down the drain. Unfortunately, I am bill for water and sewer based on water used so I wasted plenty of water. Now , I hit the button and the pump comes on and within 2 minutes I have hot water at the faucet without wasting any water. I am installing a unit under the kitchen sink for the same reasons. This is a great unit.

The Taco D-MAND System saves time, too

Comments about 006-DM-PK Male NPT, 006 Pump w/ plumbing kit, 1/40 HP:

I use the system every morning, and whenever hot water is needed. I have a 42 foot run of 3/4" pipe from the water heater to point of use, so it saves about 1 gallon of water each time it is used. The time it takes hot water to reach the faucet is also reduced by about half. So far, I have nothing negative to say about it.

Faster hot water saves water

Comments about 006-DM-PK Male NPT, 006 Pump w/ plumbing kit, 1/40 HP:

The install was a hard one. My water lines ran parallel to the wall making it impossible to attach the provided Ts. I ended up sweating a 90 degree on to the Ts. Valves took the longest time to remove. Tuff working under a sink. Wife didn't want to mount button on cabinet, so I mounted it in a drawer. I am saving water and have a shorter wait time for hot water. Great product.

Good product tough to install

Comments about 006-DM-PK Male NPT, 006 Pump w/ plumbing kit, 1/40 HP:

Just finished installing the 006 pump on my master bath sink. It's not that easy to cut off copper water pipe and tighten the compression fittings laying on your side (made it look easy on This Old House). The most disapointing feature is how long it takes the pump to run to get the hot water back to the sink. A remote switch or motion sensor is almost a must.

Installed easy and works fast

Comments about 006-DM-PK Male NPT, 006 Pump w/ plumbing kit, 1/40 HP:

I got this installed in a handful of hours as a Christmas present for my parents. It installed easily. Everything I needed was in the plumbing kit. It brings the hot water faster than I thought it would. My only minor comment is that the stainless steel flex lines could be longer. You might want to check this before ordering.

Best Plumbing Product Ever

By Maverickman

Comments about 006-DM-PK Male NPT, 006 Pump w/ plumbing kit, 1/40 HP:

Tired of waiting for hot water, this kit will solve your problem. Since the installation of the kit my family will actually push the start button, they enjoy the hot water on demand. The system delivers as promised. It has helped reduce the water bill (no more running the water down the drain) and the gas bill, I was surprised to see a reduction in gas with no change in occupancy. This is a well designed kit that kept customer satisfaction and energy conservation in mind, a real product winner.

      It comes with one push button for starting the system. The part number of the button is 554-3, should you need additional ones.

      That does come with a small round push button that can be drilled into the front of a cabinet.

      A:

      Yes, it comes with a push button with a fairly long length of cable. I prefer the wireless accessory, for simplicity and ease of locating the switch.
